Latvian flag carrier airBaltic has firmed up its options for seven Bombardier CS300 aircraft, taking its total order for the aircraft to 20.

The original order for 10 firm CS300 aircraft with options for another 10 was announced in December 2012.

AirBaltic converted three of the options in February 2014. The Riga-based airline will begin taking delivery of the aircraft in the second half of this year, with the firm order amounting to approximately $506m.

Martin Gauss, CEO at airBaltic, said: “The order will substantially improve the connectivity of the Baltic region with Western Europe and the Eastern markets – all of which will help stimulate the economies of Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania, and create new jobs.”
